I really like ginger stuff. My mom used to make gingerbread and lemon sauce (sounds iffy but it’s great!), I like gingersnaps more than just about any other cookie and I have explored medicinal uses for ginger brandy (uh…sure…medicinal uses).
When Mommaw and Granddad invited us over to make gingerbread houses, I was likely more excited than the kids. None of us has the patience to make a full-blown 3-D gingerbread house. Patience runs so thin amongst us, in fact, that Isaac didn’t even have the patience to ice his gingerbread house. He said he liked it as it was, though I think he really just hates crafty stuff that much. Anyhow, Mommaw found a simple recipe and a house cookie cutter so we were set to go.
You can see that the kids used the flour with gusto and had it all over. The very best part of this fun was that it was at Mommaw and Granddad’s house!
We iced most of the cookies a little but we really were excited to get to the eating. After only 24 hours, we have finished all of the cookies! Yes, hibernation weight is coming along nicely!
